President Barack Obama
President Barack Obama visited Boston on October 16, 2010 for a campaign rally for Governor Deval Patrick at the Hynes Convention Center. Other speakers were Senator John Kerry, Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray, U.S. Rep. Edward Markey, Vickie Kennedy, and Mayor Menino. James Taylor sang several songs, as well. I decided to go, not knowing how many more chances I would ever get to photograph President Obama. The speakers—particularly President Obama and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick–were excellent–filled with enthusiasm and fire for their country and their party. The complete set of photos can be found on my flickr website at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mrgrosky/ . My political blog entry on President Obama’s Accomplishments (“President Obama’s December to Remember”) can be found on “This Week With Mitch Grosky,” located at http://thisweekwithmitchgrosky.wordpress.com/

The Hope and Promise of President Barack Obama
This photograph represents, for me, not only the hope and promise which is inherent in the Presidency of Barack Obama, but also the hopes, dreams, and optimism of the American people and people from around the world.
In Barack Obama, I feel that we have a dynamic, compassionate individual whose wisdom, intelligence, and willingness to listen to others will be essential in confronting the enormous problems that confront America and the entire world. With the support, sacrifice, and work of the American people, it is my hope that President Obama will lead us into a brighter future, one in which people of all colors, races, religions, ethnic origins, and life choices, live in mutual respect. I look to a more peaceful world, one in which the greatness of America is manifest by the elimination of poverty and by the establishment of equal opportunity for all.
The photograph, then, looks toward the future in a very optimistic way, and, therefore, represents the fulfillment of all the hope and promise which is embodied in our new President, Barack Obama.
